ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
Millennium Fellowship Project
Food Recovery Network is a student movement aimed to fight waste and feed people. My goal is to set up a chapter of the Food Recovery Network at Northeastern, and do all the work to be ready to start recovering uneaten, unsoiled food and delivering it to local nonprofits feeding the hungry by the end of the Fellowship.
